How to prepare?
Step-1 To make this mouth-watering pasta recipe, first you need to prepare the sauce. Take a pan, pour some oil in it and heat the pan over medium flame and add minced garlic along with red chilli flakes and sauté for 2 minutes.
Take another pan, pour some water and bring it to a boil. Add penne pasta to the boiling water along with salt and oil, and cook the pasta for few minutes. When pasta cooked, drain the extra water with the help of a strainer and transfer the pasta in another bowl.
Step-2 In this step, add the peeled tomatoes, basil, and parsley in the pan. Blend all the ingredients well and let it cook for 10 minutes until the sauce began to thicken. When the sauce starts to gain consistency, turn off the flame and add salt and black pepper powder to the sauce. Keep the sauce warm
Step-3 Add pasta to warm sauce and toss carefully. Serve it straight away. If you love cheesy pasta, then you can also garnish pasta with some grated parmesan cheese to make it more aromatic. You can dry roast the basil leaves and crush it with chilli flakes and oregano to add more taste in your red sauce pasta. Serve this pasta with garlic bread.
